Instructions - Hieroglyphics Word Processor

               Write Your Name in Ancient Egyptian 
     Using this program, you will be able to write your name, as 
well as a number of authentic Pharaonic titles and phrases, in 
the actual Hieroglyphic script of the ancient Egyptians. 
     In addition to an Atari ST (obviously), the only other item 
you will need is a printer which can follow the Epson graphics 
protocol.  This includes all Epsons as well as most other dot- 
matrix printers, both 9 and 24 pin, which have an "Epson 
Emulation" Mode. 
      To test your printer for compatibility, boot the "Display" 
program in low resolution.  The title screen will come on and 
stay on for about 30 seconds while the hieroglyphs are being 
loaded.  Then the Operating Screen will appear.  It contains 
several rows of hieroglyphs, then a series of lines that looks 
like a musical score, more hieroglyphs, and the Menu.  Press the 
S key on your keyboard and a series of characters will appear on 
the lined staff portion of the screen.  Press P and they should 
print out on your printer.  If the characters are "spaced out",
vertically, try turning off the "Auto LF" DIP switch on your 
     If this works, you might try to compose a line of your own. 
First press N to clear the screen.  Then move the mouse arrow to 
the center of a hieroglyph and press the left button; a copy of 
the character will be created and it will follow the mouse.  Move
it to the left end of the lined staff and paste it down by 
pressing the left button again.  Continue with as many characters
as you wish; when you have finished your line press C to center 
it on the page and P to print it out.  Note that only those 
characters that are pasted between the green lines and to the 
right of the previous characters will print. 
     So that you can better use this program,  we have prepared 
two tables, a "Transliteration Chart for Proper Names" and a 
"Translation Chart for Phrases" as well as a 32 page booklet.  
The booklet  explains the history of the hieroglyphs, their 
decipherment, how to read them, and how to use this program.  The
charts, booklet, and several sheets of artificial papyrus are 
available for $6.00. 
     Of the 500 or so hieroglyphs, 49 of the most common  are 
contained in this program.  An additional 92, including all of 
the ones used in the booklet, indexed per Gardiner's Egyptian 
Grammar, are available on a separate disk for an additional $7.00
if ordered separately or $6.00 if ordered with the booklet.
